Cut your paper plate evenly in half.
Place one half of the plate in front of you so that the flat edge is closest to your body. Using a pencil draw an oval shaped nose in the right hand corner of the plate. Next draw a semi circle from the edge of the nose to a quarter of the way up the arch of the paper plate.
Cut around the nose and arch shape to make your porcupine shape. With the black pen, outline the nose, and draw a small mouth, eye and ear.
Feather the edge of your paper plate by making short cuts a few mms apart. Once you’ve cut the entire back of the porcupine, use your fingers to ruffle the feather cuts.
Paint your Porcupine using watercolour paints. If you don’t have paints at home, you could use watered down food colouring, or coloured pens instead.
Enjoy playing with your porcupine, and make some other paper plate animals.
